Traits of the World’s Best Companies
Business Week recently released its list of the 2009 World’s Best Companies. I take most so-called “Best” lists with a high degree of skepticism, and this one is no exception because of how the companies were measured. In this case, an outside consulting firm took the 2,500 largest publicly-traded companies in the world, and then from that list did culling by other factors. A useful list to be sure, but mis-titled in my humble opinion. Nevertheless, there are some useful insights. I was interested in what factors these companies had in common. So, compare your business or organization with these traits of the World’s Best Companies:
– Diversified Portfolio;
– Strong Leadership:
– Aggressive Expansion; and
– Clear Vision for the Future.
